Program Description: Courses offered by the Canada Institute of Linguistics are designed to teach skills necessary for learning and describing unwritten languages for literacy work and for translation. These courses deal with the general principles basic to all languages, and are illustrated by material from languages of Europe, Asia, Africa, Oceania and the Americas. The qualified graduate is prepared to face any language, even though there may not be any literature written in or about it. This program parallels SIL courses taught presently in Australia, England, France, Germany, Japan and the United States, but certain attractive innovations in the training are unique to CanIL.

Students can earn a Bachelor's degree at Trinity Western University with a Minor in Linguistics (with or without a TESL Certificate), a Major in Linguistics (with or without a TESL Certificate), or a TESL Certificate.
